This morning I woke to find a link on my Facebook page.
It sent me to this post here: Brickwalls It is written by another mother of a child with Wolf-Hirschhorn Syndrome.
It makes me angry and sad that in this day and age, we still have to face professionals who view kids with disabilities as not worthy of saving.
A life is a life.
Just because a person can't walk like you, or talk like you, or even eat like you, doesn't mean that they are any less of a person.
Not giving someone life saving surgery because you don't deem them worth it just makes me sick to my stomach. How can a medical professional sit there and 'play God' and refuse a little girl the chance at a longer life?
There are other bloggers too who have written about this.
You can read their blogs here:
Little Something For Me
Kisses For Kaylee

A Kind Of Crazy
Love That Max
(I will add to the links as I can)
